I just had a conversation with EHR Schober, author of the soon to be published book of poetry: “Joys and Laments of Getting Older” .  This little pearl popped out of her mouth:

“All of it is part of it – and part of it is all of it.”

Think about it.  I’m still mulling it over.

Searching for an answer to an age-old question

Now that JOYS and LAMENTS of GETTING OLDER is in it’s final stages and ready to be published (at least the first limited edition) I am getting involved with new topics and am looking at “LOVE” – what is it?

Would you like to share your thoughts on this subject? For now, I will keep my thoughts out of your way for now.


Results of the 4th “advance read” are in…

These words almost brought tears to my eyes.  I am moved that the outpourings of my heart and soul had such an effect.
